Inspiration Challenge and Fitz and Floyd!

Today's Inspiration Challenge is to be inspired by this site -
Fitz and Floyd! Good grief....I will probably be inspired to buy stuff - I love all their pretty little things.....*bigbigbigbigbigsigh*

I chose to be inspired by these gorgeous little bunnies! Aren't they adorable!!?

I used one of Little Paper Shop's digi images called "Bunny".

All of the designer paper I used is from Crate Paper Blue Hill Collection and I just love it!! Can you see the resemblance to my blog banner?? That was the inspiration I gave Beth for my banner - and it turned out so wonderfully - inspirations all around!!

I printed off the Bunny four different times, once on each different piece of designer paper.

I have an OLD stamp that is a zig zag, so I stamped it onto each designer egg and then cut out various strips of it and paper pieced it back together - kind of like Humpty Dumpty - but with a better ending.... lol!

I coloured Bunny with my copics and then added "fur" by drawing my brown marker onto a small scrap of towel and then blotting it onto the image - then it makes it kind of sweet looking - maybe with more practise I can make it more "sweet" than "looking"!

I saw
Marianne Walker do that here, so I thought I would give it a shot!

I glitzed up some Prima flowers with Frosted Lace stickles and added them to the image. Then I glued some buttons onto the middle of the flowers and added Kaiser self-adhesive pearls on top of the buttons - lots of pretty little layers!

I stamped the Mixed Messages sentiment in new Melon Berry ink - too dang pretty of an ink!!

Well, I hope you have a great day!!


  1. Oh, you are looking to get me into ALL sorts of Papertrey trouble, aren't you...GRRRRRR. I have IGNORED the past two or three releases and I just am not going to be able to do that this time! I need the Melon Berry from last month and OMW HAVE YOU SEEN the previews? UGH!
